When cats/kittens arrive at the cafe, they need to stay as a student cat for a month. We study their personality during this period and people can submit the pre-adoption forms. After a month or so, we will look for the best match for that cat/kitten. We also sometime cannot release cats if the cafe has less than 10 cats in the cafe.

We work with some cat rescue organizations in the Wellington region like FeralNation, Loose Leash Cat Rescue, KittyCat Rehoming, and Poneke Ngeru. We do some rescue activities by ourselves and accept surrendered cats with careful screening.

All our cats will receive veterinary care like health checks, de-sexing, two vaccinations, and flea and worm treatments before they come to the cafe. And they will get microchipped before they get adopted and registered soon after. We charge the adoption fee below to cover the veterinary costs.

  • Teens (under 1 year) – $210
  • Adults (over 1 year) – $140

* plus, microchip fees if applicable.

Adoption Process

After you spend some time with our cats, if you fall in love with one (or more), please ask the catler about their character and what kind of home would be best for them. You can also check their status on their poster on the wall. If he/she is an “available cat”, you can ask for a pre-adoption form from the catler or barista.  If the cat “has a home” that means a match has been made but the cat is waiting for the humans to get everything ready. Applications are usually accepted for a full month after a cat arrives at the cafe. Then we will consider all applications carefully, but there is no guarantee you will be chosen. We are trying to make the best match for the cat.

If you are thinking about adoption, please let one of our staff know and get more information. Everyone needs time to think about such a big decision, so we WILL NOT let you take our cats straight away.

We have a two-week trial with money back guarantee policy. You can see how the cat reacts in your house without a risk.
